We are happy to invite members to join a company visit to Volvo Cars Asia Pacific new HQ in Jiading. At SwedCham, we do company visits to member companies of different industries and thus with different purposes. Together with Volvo Cars, the purpose of this company visit is to discuss "HR, peoples' experiences and the idea of employees as an investment".


Are you working within HR, sustainability or management and want to join us for the company visit? Register below. After the visit a Volvo bus will take us back to iAPM mall (Xuhui district).


Invitation from Volvo Car Asia Pacific:

"At Volvo Cars, everything we do starts with people. Our purpose is to provide freedom to move, in a personal, sustainable and safe way. We are committed to simplifying our customers' lives by offering better technology solutions and bringing the most advanced mobility innovations to protect them. Meanwhile, we never forget that our employees are the most valuable assets to the future.


In a business environment which is characterized by fierce competition, disruptive change and talent shortage, attracting and retaining the right people is crucial. Therefore, we want to be the Employer of Choice where people make the difference. We become the Employer of Choice through engaged people that share our purpose and live our culture grounded in humanity which inspire to a call for action.

We believe in bringing out the best in each other and harnessing the true power of people. At Volvo Car APAC, we advocate "Brand is Everybody!". Not only to our consumers and business partners, but also to our own employees. Internal branding is an essential way to constantly inform, engage and inspire our people. With a clear brand vision, culture and values that people feel proud to be a part of, our employee will be more committed to achieving the business objectives and be more emotionally connected with the company.


Whilst our employees may not be the people directly consuming our product, we need to make sure they are our biggest advocates. If they don't believe in what we have to offer, who else is going to?


Welcome to visit us at our new office building in Shanghai with SwedCham!"
